Went to using my camera and all it does is beep and shuts down I have use cheaper battery's So i bought the Energizer Rechargeable Alkaline/Ni-mh and still nothing

Could be that your batteries do not have enough mAH? They should be at least 2600mAH. Any thing less than that tends to not have enough power to keep your camera on. I've used rechargeable batteries in the range of 1200mAH and they would not keep the camera on for more than a few seconds.
Try a hard reset by holding the power button down and removing the batteries at the same time, still holding the power button down go back and insert the batteries, it should reset it self in most cases? Another possible problem your camera might have is a stuck barrel lens, if it was dropped or has some sand in the lens gears, that could also make it shut down immediately.

What does msdc mean on a vivitar 8225 camera?

It usually means Mass Storage Divice Class. This "should" only appear when you plug the camera into the computer and than press the power button which lets you vew everything on your camera on your desktop. It is just there to let you know what is going on and that your files are being uploaded it is the vivatar equivalent to a loading bar. If it is on the screen at anyother time and also not working right it may be seriousley broken and should call tech. support to further diagnose the problem. You can either click this link: or you can call to: 1-800-917-4831
Thanks for listening and I hope this helps-Richard

Power switch

Make sure you are using a fully charged Nikon battery. Problems may sometimes happen with generic batteries. If you are using a Nikon batt, then seems you may need to bring this in for servicing
